Tasting note: Ruby-red with an incipient brick rim. Classic aroma. Intense, with notes of cured leather, stewed plums and raisins, tobacco and sweet spices, vanilla and dark chocolate. Elegant, mature, complex mouthfeel. Outstanding structure and well-balanced acidity with silky tannins. Its classic Rioja bouquet stands out, big, complex and round, with an elegant finish.
Founded in the 19th Century, growing in the 20th Century and still passionate in the 21th Century. We extract the best from the wise oenological tradition: manufacturing of our barrels, racking by candlelight and long ageing. Combined with the most advanced winemaking technology.
